Waterproof Fabric & Coat Details

Waterproof fabric

Membrane material is made from a woven fabric that is very flexible, functional (waterproof, warm and windproof) and, guess what: very, very soft and comfortable. 

This fabric has 3 layers of different materials:

  • The upper layer keeps you dry by blocking rain, snow or sleet from getting through;
  • The middle layer is the membrane and it holds back the wind while letting through the steam that your body produce while moving;
  • The inner layer is made of soft material that keeps you warm while allowing the steam to flow through from inside to outside.
Membrane fabric is a lightweight material and provides freedom of movement with no additional weight to carry. These qualities make this material popular when extra flexibility for movement is required, like in cycling, running, fitness. It is also used in producing work apparel. The best known membrane fabric is GORE-TEX®.
In our case we use high quality material which is: 

Waterproof: (10,000mm) for most comfort we recommend spending a short time of no more than 60-120min in a light pressure rain (when you normally use your umbrella) or snow. Not suitable for showers!

Breathable: (5,000 gsm) best for casual walks in the city also in sunny days.

Warm and windproof: There are no guidelines for this. But we like to wear our coats from -5°C/23°F (quick walk to the car) to +20°C/68°F (in evenings on top of a light summer dress).

To sum up, membrane fabric is waterproof, windproof, breathable AND warm so it is the perfect choice if you are looking for a coat or jacket to:

  • Protect you from unexpected rain and wind;
  • Keep you warm and maintain normal body temperature;
  • Allow your skin to breath and feel comfortable.

In short, our coats are perfect for days with changing weather and mild rain or drizzle. The amazing thing is - without making any compromises, fabric still maintains all of the must have practical features of a waterproof fabric. Because of the soft and flexible material characteristics it is, to our mind, the best fabric for those who value comfortable apparel for more casual everyday lifestyle.

Thoughtful details

Rosalie coat pockets

When designing we pay attention to many different coat details which can make women life much easier. 

Adjustable tighteners are integral part of our waterproof coat hood. That will allow you to adapt large and comfortable hood for your liking and make sure no rain or wind gets to your make-up.

Hidden pockets in the side seams will allow you to casually hide a lipstick or something as essential.

Hidden push buttons will ensure your style is not compromised when in need to hide from the weather.

And of course we have thought also about the most beautiful changes in womens' body - pregnancy. That's why a few of our coats have been specially designed as a maternity coat and we assure you, they will look great also after pregnancy.
